The COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM in NASHVILLE will close the exhibit “Family Tradition: The WILLIAMS Family Legacy,” on DECEMBER 31st. In anticipation of the exhibit’s close, the museum is presenting several “Family Tradition”-themed programs in the coming weeks, including an OCTOBER 29th panel discussion on southern rock that will feature BONNIE BRAMLETT, CHARLIE DANIELS, JIMMY HALL, MIKE HYLAND and ED KING.
The program, “Brothers & Sisters: The Rise of Southern Rock,” will begin at 1:30p (CT) in the museum’s FORD THEATER. The group will discuss how they and others fused blues, Country, rock and soul into a distinctly southern sound. This program is included with museum admission and is free for museum members. The event will also be streamed live at www.countrymusichalloffame.org.
Visitors who tour the “Family Tradition” exhibition in its final weeks will also be able to see several new artifacts, including two notebooks containing song lyrics written by HANK WILLIAMS but never recorded. The exhibit opened on MARCH 28th, 2008. Originally scheduled to close on DECEMBER 31st, 2009, the exhibit was extended to DECEMBER 2011.
